"Uhuru is Too Young to Retire," Kung'u Muigai Explains How The President Will Serve Kenya Post 2022

President Uhuru Kenyatta will complete his second term in 2022 after leading the Jubilee administration since 2013 alongside his Deputy President William Ruto.

The constitution dictates that a politician can only occupy a certain post for two terms, and thus the president is expected to retire or if need be seek another political post.

Few months ago, reports emerged that there were underlying plans by the president's allies to push him for another senior post in case the Building Bridges Initiative report goes through.

Speaking on TV 47 on Monday evening, Uhuru's cousin Kung'u Muigai affirmed that the president was too young to retire from serving the country, adding that the Head of State will venture in different capacities to carry on with service delivery.

The patron of Kikuyu Council of Elders revealed that his age still allows him to engage not only the Kenyan space but also the international community.

"By retiring, the president can contribute to the development of this country, region and Africa in other ways. I am sure he can do wonderful things just as the former US president Jimmy Carter. The fact that he's young does not mean he hangs on to the presidency," said Muigai.
